Traditional red will dominate the Christmas season again this year, but watch for a greater variety of fresh evergreens, berries, roes and accents. Other popular color schemes include darker reds and crimson shades, as well as non_traditional palettes such as purple and turquoise. Textures will continue to play an important role, with flower arrangements featuring everything from pinecones and cedar to intricate handmade ornaments. Expect to see more glass bowls, cubes and vases of every size, especially in colors. With an emphasis on home and hearth, decorator cachepots and family heirloom containers will also play a part.
Bouquets, a French word with no English equivalent, would be defined as a bunch of flowers tied together. It is the most popular floral gift, especially during the festive seasons and for special occasions, due to its simple design and mobility. Individual flowers are cut, preened, arranged and tied together or wrapped in waterproof material because the bouquet is kept damp. The type of flowers used in a bouquet depends on the occasion, but much like modern flower arrangements, the choice depends on the florist.
